BFP on cycle #16!

Postby JennyRae82 » Thu Jan 01, 2015 8:49 am

Hello!

I've been a looooooong time stalker of the TTC boards and I finally decided to join. After just two months there, I got my first ever BFP! So, I'm moving over to the pregnancy forums.

My fiance, Cody, and I have been TTC since September 2013 and we were absolutely overjoyed to get a natural positive on month 16 only two days before Christmas. It certainly made the holidays all the more exciting!

Honestly, it totally caught us off guard. I had myself convinced we were having fertility issues and we were gearing up to talk to the doctor about checking us out, but we wanted to wait until it had been 1.5 years of trying. Because I'm over 30 and this is our first, we weren't sure how long to wait. Well, now we know! I only took the pregnancy test because I had been battling a cold for a few weeks and wanted to cover my bases before taking any medication. I was floored with the little pink line appeared! My hands were shaking so badly that I couldn't even read the test results unless it was sitting on the counter.

I'm about 5 weeks and 3 days into this adventure and I look forward to getting to know you all!

Thank you! A big congrats to you too! I couldn't contain my excitement and told my SO and parents right away. After trying for so long, I just wanted everyone to know. I wanted to do the HPT as a gift to surprise my mom and dad, but I have no willpower. LOL I bet your DB was elated at his gift!!!

No real symptoms so far. Occassionaly, I get mild cramping on my lower left side and my lower back has been pretty sore, but totally tolerable. My main symptom is absolute exhaustion which I will happily take over morning sickness. What about you? Are you having many symptoms?
